Paul, Jesus' Witness to the Gentiles

Jesus promised His disciples
that they would take the gospel
to the remotest parts of the earth.
Observe Paul's transformation
from persecutor of the church to preacher.
Join him on his journeys
across the Roman world to proclaim the saving message of Jesus to Jews and Gentiles.
Learn how to witness
and how to live an authentic Christian life
in all circumstances
in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Learn to be like Paul,
to be bold in proclaiming the name of Jesus
and to trust our sovereign Lord
who enables us to endure persecution
and suffering at the hands of those
who hate Jesus...and therefore, hate us.
